Cramer referred to the reported plan as “camelcide”.The next day on the show, Burnett said her comment was meant as a joke.

On December 7, 2010, Burnett presented an investigative report on chemical giant Transammonia doing business in Iran. She reported that a wholly-owned subsidiary of Transammonia in the United States purchased ammonia from Iran.

On December 13, 2010, as a result of the CNBC report, Transammonia sent a press release to congressional leaders stating that Transammonia’s Swiss subsidiary would not enter into new contracts with Iranian companies and would wind down its business with Iran “as soon as possible.” The following year, the investigative report was nominated for an Emmy.
